Photo by Arthur Rothstein:

The Wall Street Journal has a unique look to the portraits it publishes, known as "hedcuts". They're a lot more complex than they look. A simple run through a filter or two won't hack it.

Here is a research link:

Challenge: Turn this photo portrait into a "hedcut" and provide a description of the steps you used

Post the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you retouch and how much you retouch is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

NOTE: As is the case for ALL RetouchPRO Challenges, there is NO expiration date on this Challenge. Even after other Challenges go up, feel free to upload your version

We've had some fine entries so far, but folks seem to be missing the point about the images being made up of dots.

Here's a video demonstrating how they're made (sans Photoshop):
